Head injuries are the most dangerous type of injury to humans. On May 20, the Deputy Chief Physician for the Medical Department of the Puchkov Emergency Medical Service Petr Davydov warned about this.
At the same time, the doctor called the presence of bleeding from the wound the main criterion for the severity of damage. Head injuries are very dangerous and fraught with complications, so they require close attention, the specialist emphasized.
“It is also necessary to call an ambulance in case of deformation of the limb along the axis, when we see an “unnatural” curvature of the limb, this also requires seeking help, as it is associated with a fracture or severe dislocation, in which the participation of a specialist is necessary,” Davydov told RIA Novosti “.
To reduce the risk of injury, the expert recommended always looking around, preferring safer shoes with non-slip soles and minimizing injury-prone activities.
On April 23, Fuad Seyfullayev, a surgeon, said that the occurrence of a hematoma and an increase in temperature after an injury require a visit to a doctor. In addition, specialist help will be required if the bruise itself increases over time, but the pain does not go away. At the same time, scratches and abrasions are quite easy to cure on their own: disinfect the wound, bandage or seal it, and then use antibacterial gels or powders for quick healing.
